Food This Week – 1 to 7 November 2014

Hello November. I did promise that this week, I’d update you on last weeks shopping and I’ve identified a weakness in my menu planning, it all goes to hell if I don’t shop for food on the weekend and last weekend I didn’t. I was off plan for all of the weekend, after a Saturday breakfast of minty fresh pancakes (the vanilla and peppermint extract bottles are very similar!) I ended up drinking champagne and then doing the M&S Dine in for Two on Saturday with Ma. On Sunday I didn’t shop and instead did some shopping on Monday night for the basics of what I needed, I spent £14 but I didn’t get everything I planned.

So onto this week…

Saturday

Breakfast – Yoghurt and pear honey

Lunch – no plan

Dinner – Cheese and bread and hummus from the Cheddar Deli

Lunch – Roast dinner – practice at roast dinner because I’m cooking it for Ma’s birthday lunch and it’s dark.

Dinner – ‘lunch’ will probably be around 5pm so nothing!

Shopping and cost

Because it’s the beginning of the month this shop is a lot of stocking up on basics and buying meat for the rest of the month so I reckon it’s going to cost about £40.
